I just joined and ordered my 2 credits. I have listed 26 books so far. Do I need to list all of my books at once? How can I get people to look at what I have to offer? Would really like to see this site work for me. Some ideas please?

Okay I just looked at requested books, I saw one I have listed, how can I let people know it's on my list?

PBS runs on a First IN, First OUT method.  So when you put any books on your shelf, they will be added to the system that way.  If others already have added these books to the system, theirs will get requested before yours will.

If the book is wish listed, they will be sent an email telling them to come here and accept the request. You'll also get an email telling you the book has been requested.

Being active on the forums also gives a chance for your shelf to be looked at.  Some people do a 2 for 1 credit deal, and they can post about that deal on the book bazaar forum.

There are some tips in these threads, and some of the information is also irrelevent:

You can also go to the forum called Book Bazaar with a circus tent icon.  Read through the bold red thread at the top, and search through some of the member's individual threads.  Also, feel free to click on my links below, my profile, my book lists, and my bookshelf for ideas of ways to advertise and get things moving.  Good luck!

The Help Center has a document called "How to Get Your Books Requested!" which you might like to check out for ideas.
